ELECTRONICA | Onuinu 

Portland, Oregon-based multi-instrumentalist Dorian Duvall, a.k.a. Onuinu (pronounced "On you in you") calls his genre disco-hop. Maybe that description is too limiting, as his trio creates ambient electro-pop that's both expansive and beautiful. Singer-guitarist-composer Duvall crafts the lush electronic arrangements that embellish the melodies at the heart of its tunes as band members add live synths and percussion to keep things fresh. Debut CD "Mirror Gazer" has subtle nuances — particularly on trippy single "Ice Palace" — that make me hear something new every time. Onuinu feels like an up-and-comer and music insiders at Portland's Willamette Week newspaper voted it among the Top 10 best new groups of 2012. With Light Feelings and PK.

Onuinu performs Sunday, January 20, 9 p.m. at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8. 454-2966, bugjar.com.
